Selco Stars initiative has donated to 12 community groups around the UK who needed materials for repairs and improvements to their facilities. Now one of these groups will win a £5,000 jackpot which could completely transform the help they can provide in their local community.
Learning to Work are one of the 12 finalists and we need your public vote in the Selco Stars competition, if successful we will use the money to help school children through a qualification called Volunteer Passport.
The Volunteer Passport is carried out through schools and sees children produce a portfolio of work, including going out to volunteer in the local community.
“It’s an important step in helping the next generation into work and, if we are lucky enough to win the public vote, we can extend the number of children which benefit from this scheme thanks to Selco.” Rachael Burt CEO Learning to Work
Carine Jessamine, marketing director at Selco, added: “We were inundated with applicants from a host of good causes with outstanding credentials so Learning to Work has done extremely well to be shortlisted. “It does excellent work in the community and hopefully the whole of Slough will get behind the charity in its quest to win an amount of money which would make a huge difference to the work it does.”
